Christopher D. Lin

Christopher Lin is an artist and educator based in Brooklyn, NY. He received his BA from Yale University and his MFA from Hunter College. Along with teaching at Hunter College, Lin works in the Education Department at the Museum of Modern Art working to engage students with artworks within the gallery as well as leading studio sessions and school visits. Combining elements of systematic experimentation and ritual practice, his sculptures, performances, installations, and conceptual projects explore materials that are familiar to the viewer but are presented in an unfamiliar way. Through careful arrangements of found objects and performative encounters, the everyday is twisted and made visceral. Play transforms into contemplation as he explores themes such as transience, the human condition, and environmental anxiety. Lin's work has been exhibited around New York, Philadelphia, and Chicago, recently at Flux Factory, Hercules Art Studio Program, Church of St. Paul the Apostle, Ethan Cohen Fine Arts, and Thomas Hunter Project Space among others. He received the C12 Emerging Artist Fellowship in 2016 and is currently an Artist-in-Residence at the Hercules Art Studio Program.
